REAL GENIUS

Cambridge Science Festival After Dark!

(1985) dir Martha Coolidge w/Val Kilmer, Gabriel Jarret, Michell Meyrink, William Atherton, Jon Gries, Robert Prescott [108 min; DCP]
Certainly the most realistic of the films in the series, REAL GENIUS is also just flat-out fun. From the moment that Pacific Tech freshman Mitch (Jarret) meets his madcap new roommate Chris (Kilmer) it’s clear that his buttoned-up life will never be the same.

Looking for more Val Kilmer? Check out TRUDELL, screening Sunday, April 24 at 7:00.
